This is the second item in my Bedrock Series.
To explain: In the Summer of 2022, the friends and I crossed Canada by bicycle as the Spinning Wheels Tour to raise awareness of how to live well with Parkinson's Disease. It was epic. We started in Victoria B.C. on June 25 and arrived in St. John's Newfoundland September 17. Along the way we encountered innumerable people living with the ailment, and we offered encouragement and support. We also raised funds for some very worthy charities.
On route, I collected interesting and unique rocks from interesting and unique places, and I have spent the last few months shaping and polishing them for use in art projects, ensuring that each piece can bear the sign "Made of Canada". I hope that you enjoy what is to come.
This piece, called Nature's Show: Autumn Lake, incorporates gorgeous stones that I extracted from a tranquil lake in British Columbia. I first viewed these shore-hemmed trees on a warm Summer day and presumed that I was seeing them at their best. But nature is all business during Canadian Summers, so the trees were still dressed in their work clothes. But in Autumn, when the work is done, we get to see their wild side.
